figure vs. mediaobject

Hello DocBook,

 

I just used the d:figure tag for images, but I have done more and more
workarounds for that, to have d:figures in each part.

Also I used the d:title  within the d:figure to have a caption, but this
“d:title”-caption was also not that kind I’d like to have, because I missed
links and some format-options like bold, underlined and so on.

 

As I tried to refactor this part of my implemetation I dicovered the d:mediaobject.

It seems to fit in every case - perfect. But in the meanwhile I stuck because I didn’t
get these images with the d:mediaobjet in my list of figures.

 

So, what do you recommand for having a List of mediaobjects?

Thank you and
Best regards

Markus

Ant build error during DocBook xi:includes

I'm working with a inherited build system which converts dita to docbook then to HTML/PDF and I'm getting failure during a stage in the build that tries to resolve the DocBook xi:includes:

 

   <target name="resolveXincludes" depends="DocBookXML">

        <outputMessage message="Identity transformation of ${output.base.path.build}docbook-xml/${base.file.name}/${base.file.name}.xml to resolve xi:includes" />

        <saxon6-xinclude

           in="${output.base.path.build}docbook-xml/${base.file.name}/${base.file.name}.xml"

           out="${output.base.path.build}docbook-xml/${base.file.name}/${base.file.name}-resolved.xml"

           style="${docbook.xslt.customization.path}copy.xsl"

           docId="${current.docid}" />

   </target>

The failure seems to come during the call to the standard copy.xsl file:

 

                <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">

                                                <xsl:copy>

                                                                <xsl:apply-templates select=" <at> *|node()"/>

                                                </xsl:copy>

                                </xsl:template>

                </xsl:stylesheet>

BTW - The file it fails reading exists in that location.

 

I've got debug turned on, so the "No route to host ... Transformation failed: Run-time errors were reported" is the only clue I've got.

 

Anybody have any ideas?

dialogue or drama?

Hi everyone

In the Publishers schema, a <dialogue> is "A container for speeches and 
other forms of communication involving dialogue."

And a <drama> is "A container for plays and other forms of dramatic 
presentation."

In practice, we are seeing lots of potential ambiguity about where to 
use each one, not least since they have the same content model. For 
example, a very short quoted extract from a play can easily look like an 
exchange between two people and hence our supplier has used <dialogue>, 
though since it is from a play, technically it probably should be in 
<drama>.

Similarly, I've also seen interview transcripts placed in <drama>, 
though <dialogue> would probably be more appropriate. Some have even 
occured within <qandaset>...

Does anyone have any experience of offering more firm guidance on usage 
of these elements, please?

Thanks

Fixed layout page numbers in html and epub output

Hi all,

Is there any way to implement page numbers in the HTML or ePub outputs?
I mean specifically if there is already a printed book equivalent or PDF created from the Docbook file?

IDPF offer advise http://www.idpf.org/accessibility/guidelines/content/xhtml/pagenum.php but except for manually encoding these post-conversion is there a way to do it in the Docbook markup?

Many thanks,

Peter

Mock title in docbook

Hello Docbook,

 

I’m looking for the right way to have a mock title or an imprint.

What tag do I have to use?

I have to set the authors, publishing information and edition notes, and
they should not appear on the title page.

Thank you in advanced.

Kind regards
